Year of the 12s

The Air Jordan 12s are one of the most sought after models of all the classic Retro Jordan’s. The 12s were originally introduced in the beginning of the ’96-’97 season, a season which brought MJ his 5th title, and were full of historic moments like the “flu game.”

 2016 is here and on schedule to bring some old school flavor and a couple new colorways bound to make some noise.

First up we have a lil somethin’ for the girls…


The Air Jordan 12 GS Dynamic Pink will come in a white tumbled leather upper heavily contrasted by the hits of Dynamic Pink placed throughout the upper of the shoe as metal eyelets are spotted at the very top. These are set to drop on Feb 6 at the price of $140.

 Next up, The Master…


Inspired by a poster of MJ titled “The Master,” this brand new colorway is bound to make a splash as soon as it hits the scene.  It’s simple and to the point with an all black leather with gold detailing on the eyelets and white and grey accents on the branding throughout. This basic scheme screams BOSS and would be a major key if picked up. Save the February 27th date and cop yours at the price of $190.

The classics have returned…

While the “French Blues” aren’t necessarily an OG, but almost nothing compares to the love and respect these dope 12s have received since they’re original 2004 release. This Air Jordan 12 “French Blues” use a white leather on the majority of the upper with French Blue wrapping around the heel, midsole and part of the side panels. The silver eyelets give the shoe a nice touch of class. Pick yours up on March  26th for $190.

 Did someone say OG?!

In remembrance of game 5 of the ’97 NBA Championship game, Jordan Brand is bringing back the classic and always on point “Flu Games.” Featuring an all leather black-based upper and Varsity Red accents with black eyelets. These shoes will be much anticipated as the last time they were seen in 2009 they featured a nubuck upper with game details on the heel and a sick-face emoji on the tongue. Make sure you have your ticket ready as these will be sure to go fast on May 28th for $190.

 Lastly, somethin’ for the new school 

Similar to the “Cool Grey” 12s of 2012, these Grey/University Blue sport a nubuck cool grey upper with white around the heel, pops of university blue, and some silver eyelets on the upper that brings in a nice cool tone… Not much have been said about these releases, they’re sure to be a hit especially for the Carolina fan… Let us know what you think, cop or not? Pick them up on June 25th for $190.

This is obviously the year of the 12s, almost 20 years from their original release. Let us know which ones you’ll be picking up, and if there are any hot shoes out there that you want us to do a review for just send a comment…
